My girls are finally beginning to lay eggs. I have collected 3 eggs so far and I have found 2 times broken egg shells, one in the nest and one in the floor. Unless the predators are extremely small, they can not get to my girls or their eggs. A snake could but I know enough about that, being a former snake owner, that snakes will eat the entire egg right there. I am wondering if my girls could be pecking at their own eggs, there is never any egg left from the shell, or is there a predator that is getting in somehow? Has anyone dealt with anything like this before?
